This is an update to my previous review titled “Comfortable room, horrible valet”. While I stand by my previous claims that the room was clean, comfortable and spacious, sadly, I must now critique the customer service. This hotel has the ambiance of a 5-star hotel with the customer service of a motel. From check in to now what is months after my stay, the experience has been less than desirable. My stay was booked on orbitz.com in September where it was paid in full. When I checked in to the hotel on October 9th, it had not been disclosed to me that my reservation was not found in their system. After my trip was completed, I was surprised to find that my card had been charged for the full price of the room. When I called the hotel to address this issue I was told to take it up with Orbitz and that a refund could not be issued from the hotel. I then called Orbitz who refunded me the full amount of my stay seeing as I had paid the hotel in full directly, albeit in error due to the hotel’s confusion. Unbeknownst to me, the hotel decided they could indeed offer me a refund and did so without notice. Now we are here in February where I have once again been charged for my stay from the hotel. It has taken 6 months to pay for a weekend trip that was already PAID FOR. This entire experience has turned in to a tremendous pain and inconvenience. I cannot in good conscience recommend this hotel. I wish I had looked more closely at some of the negative reviews and I urge you to do the same. My findings during my stay were pretty accurate in reflecting what I had read. However, I was lured in by their “newness” and trendy appearance. I wish I had stayed at a more reputable hotel chain that I was familiar with. To top it off, the $50 a day 35+ minute wait (if you can even find someone to help you) valet only adds insult to injury. While I would love to visit Boston again, this hotel will not be part of my next visit.

Hi there. I’ve booked hotel for holidays. The prose was extremely low as 64$ per night. Good location, but problems start at the front desk. They quote for parking was 50$ per night. It’s too highly even for Manhattan. When I asked stuff, are there any public valet or parking in this area, nobody helped me with this question. But I found parking next street and it’s for free on Sunday and Saturday, and you can park there after 7pm on working days.

Calling to the hotel about one week prior to arrival revealed a lower price than I had booked months ago. I was informed of the change and was able to cancel the previous reservations and lock in the new price. The room was very well appointed, with lots of modern décor. Bathroom was glass enclosed with tiles throughout the room and shower area. Bed was very comfortable and extra pillows were a plus. One problem we encountered was the air conditioner in the room was not working and it was quite warm ever after lowering the thermostat. A call to the front desk was promptly addressed, and not being able to correct the situation, a new room was assigned to us with little interruption to our daily plan. Nick was very helpful with all aspects of our price change and the problem with the room assignment. He made our arrival quick and easy, which was greatly appreciated! The Cambria is a wonderful hotel, this being the second one we have tried, and both were affordable and well designed.

We just checked out today as part of a weekend trip to visit Boston/Salem. To start, the room was very clean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a decent size. We were very close to another building where we got front row seats to a beer pong tournament every night. This was easily resolved by the large blackout curtain. The hotel was also accessible to a few restaurants, our favorite being Worden Hall which was just a few steps from the hotel. Now for the negative...the parking... There’s really nowhere nearby to park your car overnight(or for longer than two hours) so we had to use the valet. It’s $50 a night which we felt was a rip off for the service we received. The driveway is very small so only 2-3 cars can fit at a time and a valet attendant was hardly ever available. We had to wait up to 35 minutes for the car each time we wanted to leave and this is after calling the front desk 20 minutes ahead. Each time the person at the desk acted like they didn’t know we called. It was really frustrating and we almost lost some reservations because of it. Otherwise the hotel was pretty close to everything we wanted to see and only a 35 min drive from Salem. Very convenient and comfortable for what it was.

The hotels rooms are actually nice at this property, but the management and staff and so bad I frankly can't believe it hasn't been closed. I will save people from all the gory details, but essentially I bought a package deal and the hotel employee at check-in said she has never heard of it. I was made to jump through crazy hoops to prove that it existed, only to ultimately be told I would need to contact corporate for any refund. They follow the adage, "The customer is never right."
